Shoftim

Recommended for ages 12+

Double your justice, double your fun? Why does the Torah tell us “Justice, JUSTICE shall you pursue”?? To beat us over the head with a point, or to tell us something more?

Join Rabbi David Saperstein for a lesson in the rules of just being, and being just.

 

Gratitude for Parshat Shoftim

Each week, a different storyteller – some musical, some poetic, some just straight-up, tell the story of the current weekly Torah portion…and then we animate it! This particular Parashat haShavua (פָּרָשַׁת הַשָּׁבוּעַ or “weekly Torah portion”) video is Episode 48 from Parshat Shoftim (שֹׁפְטִים – Hebrew for “judges,”) Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9.

Jewish interpretation is often very specific. There are a myriad of Jewish subcultures and people, and the interpretations in this series explores the array of thoughts that our diverse set of storytellers and contributors have on Torah. To see more of the videos in this series, please take a look at our collection here on our site.

A very special thank you to each of the writers, narrators, producers, directors, sound engineers, musicians, educational advisors, artists and animators that contributed to this particular animated interpretation of Parshat Shoftim including Tim Cosgrove, Nick Fox-Gieg, Liesje Kraai, Sarah Lefton, Matthue Roth, and Rabbi David Saperstein. Additional thanks to all of our generous funders that contributed to the G‑dcast Parashat haShavua animated series.

Did you know that G-dcast has changed our name to BimBam?
